Victoriana Sydney 1837-1901: A journey in photography

Sydney is one of the few largely intact Victorian cities left in the world. Nineteenth century Sydney was a town of dirty and unsealed streets, horses, windmills, splendid villas, grand colonial buildings, filthy slums and tenements and bustling crowds. The colonies of Australia were a far off outpost of the British Empire with Queen Victoria at its helm. It was all captured by the photographers of Sydney, whose evocative images provide an incredible portrait of the city in the Victorian era.

Gallery opening hours: Thursday and Fridays, 10am-4pm. Monday-Wednesday for group bookings by appointment only. Call Whitlam Institute reception office on 9685 9210
